In brief: Not necessarily

Hep b vaccination is a multi-dose vaccination.
Generally follow-up testing is not required. A small number of people do not respond very well and may not develop detectable antibody and could benefit from additional doses. Your employer may require follow-up testing to see if there is sufficient response, though it is not medically necessary.
